The Isle of Barra has a set of shiny – and environmentally-friendly new wheels today (Thursday 2 December), with the delivery of an electric minibus.

Bus Bharraigh is being delivered to the island today by conversion specialists Car, Van and Minibus World of Stoke-on-Trent in the West Midlands.

It’s the second van to be supplied to Voluntary Action Barra and Vatersay, with part-funding from the Scottish Government, adding a green option on community transport.
